It’s Not Wise To Upset A Wookiee: The Wisdom Of Being Raised On ‘Star Wars’
  |  @   |  

Here we are celebrating May The 4th, also known as Star Wars Day, once again. And I was going to try and write up something based on the new movie coming out or something cool about the cast…but I decided to go a different route. Today, I’m going to tell you about some of the most influential Star Wars-related things that have occurred in my life, starting with the original movie.

I was six when the first Star Wars film hit theaters and, as we all know, that’s a highly impressionable age. The film amazed me, as I’m sure it did virtually everyone. But the true influence at that time was the line of toys that accompanied it. My first three figures were Darth Vader, R2-D2, and C-3PO. I remember being angry that the local stores were sold out when we were out shopping, but my ever-awesome Aunt Cathy managed to find those three action figures somewhere and gave them to me for my birthday about a month after the movie came out. It was the beginning of 35 years of collecting, though I had no idea of that at the time.

May the 4th: ‘Star Wars’ Mos Eisley Cantina Videos
  |  @   |  

For May The 4thStar Wars Day — YouTube recently released videos for their “May the 4th be with YouTube” initiative. This year, YouTube Space LA and Lucasfilm gave four YouTube Channels the opportunity to shoot and produce an original video inspired by Star Wars on a Mos Eisley Cantina replica set. You can watch those videos that were created here below.

I probably don’t need to tell you all this, but the Mos Eisley Cantina is seen in the first Star Wars (as I like to call it), now known as Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope (I do not call it this). When Ben “Obi-Wan” Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 go to Mos Eisley (located on Luke’s home planet Tattooine), Kenobi says of the spaceport, “There’s never been a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.” The group goes to the Mos Eisley Cantina to look for a transport to the Alderaan system (although, the droids end up having to wait outside, since the bar doesn’t “serve their kind”) and that’s where Luke first meets Millennium Falcon pilot Han Solo and his co-pilot, the wookiee Chewbecca. The Cantina is also the setting of the controversial showdown between Han Solo and the bounty hunter Greedo.
